The biggest question mark heading into camp - aside from "who are the Patriots receivers?" — was how the Patriots wide receiver corps would look.

Well, believe it or not . . . they look good. In fact, they've surprised Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran more than any other group out there on the practice field.

"I think easily the wide receivers at this point in practice have done enough to make you say, 'Well maybe this could work, maybe these can be drafted wide receivers in Josh Boyce and Aaron Dobson who can come in and make an early impact,'" Curran said. "I think also another player, Zach Sudfeld, a tight end, he should see some reps out there as well with Gronkowski down, with Jake Ballard really exhibiting more of a plotting stature on the field than I thought he might be a little quicker than he is."
